Ausimont plans to build TFE plant

Thorofare, NJ

Ausimont USA, a multinational fluorochemical producer, is planning to build a new tetrafluoroethylene (TFE) monomer facility and Hyflon MFA perfluoropolymer unit in the United States. Production start-up is slated for the first quarter of 2001.

Company officials say construction of this $200 million TFE manufacturing plant is fueled by the rapid growth and North American market acceptance of Hyflon MFA, the perfluoroalkoxy polymer Ausimont introduced in 1995. Plans call for the new plant to serve as the production base for Ausimont`s specialty fluoropolymers and other fluorinated products in the U.S., with Hyflon MFA scheduled for production first. — TGW
